Mr. McINTOSH:

If I had a drop or two of hemlock in it I did not mean to make the medicine too strong. I wanted to be fair about it. Now, then, Mr. Speaker, I welcome the further discussion of this matter in the House of Commons. I am willing to meet the Minister of Agriculture anywhere he likes to discuss this question.

Mr. SPEAKER:

The hon. member is

not in order in making the remarks he is now making. The Minister of Agriculture has called attention to certain words which were used which he says were untrue, and he has asked to have them expunged from Hansard. I think the hon. member for Battle-ford is not addressing himself to that.
